The VISUAL LAB provides year-round support to artists and organisations working within the performing arts.

Roisin Whelan Dance

We aim to support both local, regional and national performance practice through the sharing of resources, both in space and in-house expertise.

We offer a dedicated studio space to artists allowing them the opportunity to test out ideas and develop new performance work.

The VISUAL LAB studio is available to artists, technicians, producers and practitioners throughout the entire year and is provided an application basis.

Use of the space is free of charge and subject to terms and conditions.

Our studio is 6m x 7m and equipped with a PA system and projector. Tea and coffee facilities are also available.

The studio is available for periods between one day and a maximum of one week.
